Happy Memorial Day! Officially, today’s holiday celebrates and remembers all the brave who fought for the United States of America in lands near and far. Unofficially, today represents the beginning of summer. Days at the beach, cross-country road trips, mojitos, hot dogs, jorts — all of these begin…now.

Summer is also, arguably, the best time to get outdoors. Hiking, cycling, running, camping (and many other fresh-air pursuits) are year-round activities, but warmer temperatures and extended daylight hours make these things better. So! While we’re firm believers that today is an occasion to be outside, preferably next to a sizzling grill or a cool body of water, we’ve put together a list of some of our summer-iest stories for you to peruse between meals and activities. Use them to brainstorm for the months ahead — hopefully, there’s something here that will inspire your next warm-weather adventure.
